Anomalistic Psychology attempts to explain paranormal and related beliefs

Background Inside the department Background Our aims Our research Our course Invited Speaker Series Unit members Publications Associations Email Network Organisations & resources Contact us Participate in research

The research unit was established by Professor Chris French in 2000 to provide a focus for research activity in the area of Anomalistic Psychology.

In general terms, Anomalistic Psychology attempts to explain paranormal and related beliefs, and ostensibly paranormal experiences in terms of known or knowable psychological and physical factors.  Read our introduction to Anomalistic Psychology for an overview of the field.

"Anomalistic Psychologists tend to start from the position that paranormal forces probably don't exist and that therefore we should be looking for other kinds of explanations, in particular the psychological explanations for those experiences that people typically label as paranormal." Videojug.
